Yang Pei becomes known all over China since she appeared on the stage of Dream Show. People will always remember her smile on her face and her dream to have a shop selling her own products of cross-stitch on line.

     She is 24 years old without hands. When the host of the program was talking to her she was always smiling. Her response is so quick and her expression is very good. How can a disabled girl without hands have so much confidence? Everybody was shocked when seeing a lovely and vivid girl standing on this stage showing her dream.

     Yang Pei told her story about how she lost her hands. When she was 9, she was stricken by electricity because of touching an electric wire. Then she lost her hands. Since then she couldnt go to school. Once she thought she was a fifth wheel for both her family and the society. At home she could do nothing but always needed help and much care. She had ever thought using death to free her family from this big burden. Her mother was very sad when she knew her daughters thinking and tried to persuade her daughter to treasure life and live on. With her familys help every single problem can be solved. Knowing that her family will not give her up, she encouraged herself to live on.

      Once her mother took her to a place in public, then stayed there. A passer-by showed his mercy and gave them 200 yuan. Yang Peis self-respect was really hurt. It meant that they were beggars. Yang Pei immediately asked her mother to leave and go home. She didnt want to live by the way of begging. She is actually unyielding. She wanted to get a better life through her own hard work.

      From then on she began to learn cross-stitch, a Chinese traditional art work. She learned to do needle work, getting thread through the needle with her toes. You can imagine how difficult it is to do needle work with feet. Indeed, she does it. She can do it like a normal person and become very skillful after many times of practicing.

      When seeing Yang Pei performing her needle work on the spot, the audiance were shocked. She used her toes to get the thread through the needle one by one to finish his last part of the her work. Many people showed their favor to her: helping her get a shop on line for free, buying her pictures of cross-stitch, helping her sell her products in the future and so on.

      Now she has her own products. She can earn money to help her family. She has her own shop on line to sell her own art works. She achieved her dream.

    Thus, an admission of your own stupidity.

  • Will dropping of population restrict China’s development? 2018-12-20 04:52

    The environment does matter, but I doubt the population of over 1 billion would drop to 0.1 billion so quickly. I habitually invite students to see these issues globally, and that way to habitually put comments about China's policies into a globally influential context, as is appropriate for a people who sit in the UN Security Council and who have significant gold reserves. A small % of people are concerned for the world facing water shortages. The global population has been doubling in half the time since the 1700s without any wars making a dent in the population explosion, and that is obviously the direct result of mismanaged banks making huge quantities of money freely available so people too easily live indoors and raise so many children. During the past few centuries, national policies were to increase populations because of fear of war with a neighbouring country. But in the past decade, we hear of military leaders in some countries starting to openly wish, online, that they could address threats to the environment as national threats to safety. However, my friends in philosophy point out that the evidence of natural disasters has not convinced some policy makers around the world. Of course, China is known for making green cities: a step toward sustainable urban development. Imagine a few countries in the world able to re-regulate banks and manage the economy to reduce the population explosion, manage international relations to live without fear of war, and so manage to lead international care for sustaining our environment. Walter Rothschild wrote a book listing extinct species of birds, so that our population explosion crowds many species out of life is known to bankers. I hope survival issues matter to policy makers in any country.
